My Secret Garden LLC is a boutique floral design and event styling studio based in both New Haven Connecticut area (we travel too!). Our studio is run by Ulyana and Yuliya Lyalka, a sister duo . Ulyana is the principal designer while Yuliya supports us in onsite events. Flowers are our love language and a medium with which we use to express emotions and celebrate meaningful life moments. In our studio, we harmonize rooted principles of floristry with a modern day aesthetic that is both natural and playful.While being surrounded by flowers everyday is an absolute dream, one of the most meaningful parts of our business is getting to know our clients and helping them to tell a story through flowers.

We look forward to connecting with you soon!

    Absolutely amazing

    My favorite flowers are lily's. All lily's for that matter and one of my favorite photos is my grandparents wedding photo from about 1930 and my grandmother's bouquet had lily's. I showed Ulyana a picture and told her I wanted something similar and she deffinatly didn't disappoint. I also added a few surprises for my mother and mother in law and step mother last minute and she accommodated so effertlessly! I would deffinatly recommend and use this florist again!!! Absolutely amazing!!

    Such a talented florist!

    We worked with Uly for our wedding flowers and are so happy we did! We got married at a yacht club in Greenwich, CT, and wanted to have organic, beautiful flowers. Uly created beautiful work, making sure to flawlessly execute our color scheme and vision. She had so much patience with us as we went back and forth on what we hoped for, and kept it all within a very tight budget!

    My Secret Garden's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words! Bringing your floral vision to life was such an honor! We are sending you all our love and best wishes!

    Gorgeous arch + bouquets

    I got married in July 2023 on the water and Ulyana put together a truly stunning circular arch with greens and flowers for our ceremony! She went the extra mile and kept the arch in the shade until close to the ceremony time to make sure the flowers looked their best. Our bouquets and centerpieces were all beautiful, as well. Thank you so much!!

    My Secret Garden's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review. We are glad you loved everything and it was a pleasure being a part of your special day!

The hardest part about creating a website is taking a moment to write a few words about myself! It's pretty easy to hide behind a bucket of flowers, but at the heart of my business I truly values a meaningful connection with my clients. I love hearing about your journey and what flowers mean to you. It's always my honor to be able to convey your story and personalities through floral design.
